Commercial Meat Grinder
It is important to get the facts about meat grinders before making a purchase; however, which type to buy largely depends on the needs of the business or institution. Meat grinders come in two varieties: the 1 HP model meat grinder and the 1.5 HP model meat grinder . The main difference is that the 1 HP model
has a #12 hub thas a grinding plate that can handle about 220 lbs. of meat from the butcher shop in an hour, and the 1.5 HP model has a #22 hub that can grind about 440 lbs. of meat an hour. Both of these models are easy to clean and can be used in such places as supermarkets or industrial kitchens, but the 1.5 HP model is better suited for heavy-duty operation than the 1 HP. Both of these grinders have energy efficient motors, precision gear drives, and are made of stainless steel, so cleaning them is a breeze. Each type of meat grinder has a specific kind of grinding knife that must be used in conjunction with it. You can also get a replacement 1 HP grinder knife or a replacement 1.5 HP grinder knife. Both of these meat grinders are NSF approved, meaning that they strictly comply with national codes for hygiene and safety.
Before the invention of the electric meat grinder, restaurateurs and chefs used manual meat grinders to make ground beef. The biggest problem with manual grinders is that they created an inefficient kitchen and exhausted your chefs muscles. The names food chopper and food grinder are both used for meat grinder, because most of the machines do both, depending on the attachment they are fitted with. The meat grinder is a simple machine with a single-pole toggle switch that controls the on-off function. The meat grinder operator loads the meat into the machine by pushing a hard plastic stomper or pusher. The stainless steel knives or plates inside the machine perform chopping functions, and the same pressure that pushes out food in the machine forces the ground meat out through another opening.
The Atosa Meat Grinder comes with a sausage stuffing tube so that the ground meat can emerge into the sausage casing. The diameter of the of the ground meat output can be adjusted by hand.
